In conjunction with our own Reading Round-Up program, all students that completed summer reading programs were honored. In the fall, posters are made of each student to go on our "Summer Reading Wall of Fame."
There are several important reasons to read over the summer.
• Reading over the summer keeps your skills intact for the fall.
o Your brain is a muscle you must exercise or it looses strength.
• Reading over the summer improves test scores.
• Reading over the summer is a way to travel without having to leave your own
• Reading over the summer is a way to let me know what your favorite books are
and what I need to add to our collection.
• Reading over the summer is a lot of fun!!
In order to have fun and accomplish all the goals listed above, join our summer reading
program at Hanna Woods. We are asking students in grades K-2 to read 20 picture
books. Students in Grades 3-5 need to read at least 10 chapter books. Keep on the log
sheet provided, or create your own sheet. Turn the log into Mrs. Trotier when school
starts and we will make a reading poster of you to display in the library.
Or, join the county library summer reading program. A representative from Grand Glaize
will come talk to our students about their summer reading program on May 8th. Bring in
your reading log from their program and that will also qualify you for a poster.
The Parkway Summer Reading list is updated and looks interesting! This list may be
